Asbestos, if present in a property, represents a significant danger to anyone in the vicinity. Once believed to be the most useful material in the construction industry due to its resistance to high temperatures, it is now known to cause life-threatening illnesses if ingested into the body.
When disturbed, asbestos releases millions of airborne particles that if breathed in, can cause several types of cancer of the lung, throat, and internal organs.
So, needless to say, you need to know if it’s present in your workplace.
